Campana Embraces Challenge of Breaking Records at Inter Miami, Unfazed by Messi Competition

Inter Miami clash with the New York Red Bulls on Saturday as Lionel Messi’s squad looks to widen their advantage in the Western Conference.

Leonardo Campana isn’t focused on outdoing his teammate Lionel Messi in Inter Miami’s record books.

During his stint with Miami, Campana has scored 25 goals compared to Messi’s 22 since joining in 2023 from Paris Saint-Germain.

Only Gonzalo Higuain with 29 goals has scored more than Campana and Messi for the Herons.

Campana downplays any competition with Messi over becoming Miami’s leading goal scorer.

“I don’t really pay much attention to it,” Campana said, adding that he just tries to enjoy playing.

Asked if Messi will surpass his tally, Campana stays positive and acknowledges Messi’s rapid rise.

Campana values Messi’s presence on the field and believes their teamwork benefits the squad.

Coming up for Miami and Messi are the New York Red Bulls, who trail the Herons by four points.
